Award winning artwork by Phil Price.
Wind-activated kinetic sculpture.

Description

New Zealand artist Phil Price specialises in kinetic sculptures. Working and living in Lyttleton, Price brings together his knowledge and understanding of engineering into his practice to create elegant and mesmerising kinetic forms. Price studied sculpture at the University of Canterbury before running large scale projects as a production manager for Neil Dawson Sculpture. He has taught art at Christs College in Canterbury, and started his own studio practice in 2000. Since then, he has created over 100 kinetic sculptures. His work is featured in public collections in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra, as well being privately owned in America, England, Holland, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand.

Price creates a synergy between form and kinetic functionality. Tree of Life resembles a eucalypt tree and is made from fibreglass and steel with ball-bearing joints. Tree of Life embodies Price’s fascination with materials, engineering, and the beauty of the natural world, and its gentle and graceful motion is activated by wind.
